MakerDay events are part of a worldwide movement of so-called makers. Makers are people who like to create new things with their own hands using new technologies such as 3D printing, invent new things and remake (hack) old ones. Makers are a living community, sharing their ideas and know-how.
DIY also has a rich tradition in the Czech Republic, and it is the MakerDay event that represents the ideal combination of technology and human skills. This year's MakerDay has a broader - social - dimension. Its goal is to support the restoration of public life and culture after the covid lockdown.
The event is intended for the public and is free.
Throughout the Makerday, the Discoveries will offer over 20 different activities and one-off workshops.
The Discoverarium Makerday will also include organized workshops for the public, where you can make LED jewelry, combat or drawing robots from recycled materials.
